2052 would need more power (perhaps even more for a GaN ver). I would definitely see Mk2 get engaged soon if the design is frozen.

Re: LCA: News & Discussions: 15 August 2017

What is important for Tejas is to satisfying the needs of higher thrust F414 ASAP.. basically the Mk2 space can't be allowed to SEF from firing nation. This is LCA market. That I26 SEF is actually Mk2 order space and perhaps bumped up to 200 or more.

A mach 4 missile should have higher launch speed(or faster ramp-up - exact details?)/thrust while on the rail (fraction of second before release after pilot presses the button).
